Description - Struggles for Social Rights in Latin America by Susan Eva Eckstein

This is a collection exploring the broad span of social rights struggles in Latin America. The book explores how, when, and why a broad range of groups have struggled to secure a range of social rights in Latin America. Essays come from a range of scholars in a variety of disciplines and tackle the most pressing concerns in Latin American societies. The essays present Latin Americans' own views, deprivations and struggles over rights. It is the first book to portray in rich and nuanced detail the different Latin American class, ethnic, racial, gender and sexual minority perceptions of their social rights and struggles to secure greater justice. Individual topics include the environment, AIDS, workers' rights, women's movements, citizenship, indigenous rights, tourism, and many more. With all original essays from scholars in the field, this is a valuable resource for exploring and understanding the intricacies and diversities.
